Ultra book yoga 15 - can't power on

Q: Ultra book yoga 15 - can't power on

Recently, I tried to wake my yoga from sleep, but it did not turn on after holding the power button for 4 seconds - only the red light on the think pad "I" glows for 4 seconds then turns off. The screen remains black and no fan and no light on the keyboard. I tried to do the reset button on the bottom- nothing. Then I tried to take off the bottom of the laptop, in plugged the battery, and power, then held the power button for 30 seconds. Then put everything back together. Still no change. Any other solutions?

Hi NestorG,
Please check if you hear any noise from the fan of the computer. I would recommend you to try the below mentioned steps:
Clean the air vents of the computer. Below are the steps to clean the air vents:

Check the vents on the computer to see if they are covered with dust and not allowing heat and air to pass through
Turn off the System
Unplug the AC Adapter
Remove the Battery
Use Compressed Air to blow the dust out of the vents

Note: Please use compressed air can. When using compressed air can, use the can according to the directions on the side of the can as you can cause damage to the computer if used incorrectly.
The latest BIOS available for this system model is A12. Here is the link http://dell.to/TDQ2yN .
Note: Before updating BIOS please ensure that: *Battery is 10%> or >10% charged *Battery charger should be connected *No external devices (flash drives, printers, external hard drives) should be connected. *All other programs should be closed and documents saved
Alternatively, check the CPU usage of the computer. To check the CPU usage:

Right click on the taskbar, choose ‘Start Task manager’
Click the "Performance" tab. In this screen, the first box shows the percentage of CPU usage 
Then click on ‘Processes’ tab, click on ‘CPU’ tab once and check for the application with the maximum CPU usage. 
Right click on that application (make a note of the process) and click &lsquo... Read more

My toshiba ultra book Z930 won't turn on. Yesterday it got damp when water leaked from a water bottle in my bag where the computer was.Only the yellow light blinks.

I bought it in april2012.
I use windows 8 and generally but not always use it with an A3 screen.
Is there anything I can do to save the data and/or switch it on.

Have you any advice. I can't get any help till 6th jan.

Thanks
 

A:Solved: My toshiba ultra book z930 won't turn on

Yesterday it got damp when water leaked from a water bottleClick to expand...

did it actually get wet ?, i suspect it did

i would allow it to completely dry out - maybe putting in an airing cupboard or somewhere warm

then take the battery out and the power adapter and hold the power key on for 60 seconds

if it still does not work , i suspect the pc has been damaged

to recover the data - you maybe able to remove the harddrive and then using an adapter - plug it in to a USB port on another PC and access the files
just depends on if the water also caused damage to the harddrive

Hi all =). I'm getting a computer made with a 450w power supply. I'm getting a Geforce 6800 Ultra at least, but the company recommends a 480w supply for this card. I've heard of people having problems with their power supply not being able to cope with this card, but I don't know exactly at what power their power supplies ran. Will I run into any problems with the power supply I'm getting, or should I upgrade to 480w or more?

Don't know if you need this information also, but I think this may also effect my power supply:

Asus K8V SE Deluxe Motherboard
Athlon 64 3400+
1.5 GB pc3200 DDR Ram
120 GB HDD

Also heard that AMD uses less power than Intel or something...sooo I was thinking that perhaps my graphics card will not be affected as much because of this...but dunno. Help would be greatly appreciated =D.
 

A:Regarding Geforce 6800 Ultra, Ultra Extreme, or Asus v9999 Ultra Deluxe

One, Use a title once.

Two, nope nVIDIA GeForce 6800 families or newer REQUIRES 480w of psu minimum, PERIOD. it is not matter how much watts amd or intel uses, what you means that you must have 480w or higher to have GF 6800 working properly.

Recommendation, get ATI Radeon 9600XT or 9800XT, they merely used up less than 350w.

Lucan

You will get better games or things out of ATI instead of nVIDIA due to power usages

I am running 2 monitors (Dell U2414H @ 1920 x 1080 60Hz) on my ThinkPad USB 3.0 Ultra Dock.  I also have my Yoga 900 monitor on and the desktop is extended to all monitors.  I have a regular issue where the Displayport monitor turns off for 1-3 seconds then comes back on for no apparent reason.  I have searched the internet and the only similar issue I have found suggestes the dock is under powered to run 2 monitors however that does not seem consistent with what other people are doing.  There is no particular application that causes the issue. Can anyone help?  It's very frustrating waiting for the monitors to come back on.

I have a P40 Yoga attached to an Ultra Dock 3.0 USB.  I have/had an HDMI cable coming off the dock to a ViewSonic monitor.  I am getting a maximum resoltion of 1920 x 1080 and colors are not displaying correctly or in some cases not displaying at all.  I found mention on the ThinkPad site that 4K is only supported via the DP off the dock.  So I tried a DP to HDMI cable and that does the same thing.  If I plug the monitor directly into the HDMI port on the laptop everything works great. Why doesn't the dock work as advertised and expected?  Is there a different setup required?

My Yoga S1 has contradictory, intermittent power issues that I'm trying to chase down. Culprits are bad power bric/cord/plug or power socket on mother board or power board that feeds into power button/led on. One day it blacked out and wouldn't restart to hard drive or windows stage. I did get an error code which I can't remember 5100 or 5500 poss?, that seemed to indicate the power board or ribbons to that needed replacement or re-attachment. So fiddled with it and it did fire up in windows all ok. Then ran out of power and died again. power button wouldn't light up. plugging in power unit did light up led as getting charge. Left it overnight and then it miraculously charged up. pushed power button light up twice then nothing. took out power board/detached ribbon, then it fired up to windows, fixed some hd errors and has been restarting without problems. Except now there is no plug showing on battery icon when plugged in. So not recharging but I'm sure the battery is good. And logically, the power brick and plug must be feeding electricity into laptop to get it to recharge enough to start up. So power socket and plug may be suspect with intermittent contact problems. Or the power board somehow is involved in this? I've ordered a new powerboard as easy screw in and cheap. My question about powerboard is does this control ability of plug to charge battery? power brick with new plug is next order from ebay. but the power socket, which see...

Just wanted you to know that I have installed LG 6X Super-Multi Blu Ray burner model # GGW-H20L, using Vista X64 Ultimate, and Power DVD Ultra 8.
This runs so amazing that I am completely replacing my DVD collection with Blu Ray.
The quality and sound is impeccable, and blows ordinary DVD's in the water.
I have attached a few screen shots from the movie Jumper for your viewing.

A:Vista X64-BluRay and Power DVD Ultra 8

At BDs being at around $1 per disc, it is still a bit expensive - but, in reality, that is like $.04 per GB, so....it ain't all that expensive....

Using that same price per GB ratio, DVD blanks should cost about $.16-.20 per disc - or, for a pack of 50, $10 - and that is about right too....

I've looked at the problems concerning the pen on the forums here and none of them seem to pertain to my problem specifically so I figured I would go ahead and ask. I have a Lenovo Yoga Book (the 64GB version). I reinstalled Windows 10 because it was locked out due to bitlocker, the Halo Keyboard wouldn't switch to the sketch pad mode so I reinstalled the drivers for that per the official instructions by Lenovo, and now the pen only interacts with the very top left hand corner of the screen no matter where I use the pen. I'd really like to start drawing again!Thanks in advance for any help I might receive!

Hi everybody, ever since a friend showed me the Lenovo Yoga Book online I've been in love with the device. I'm a big note taker and writer, and I think this could be perfect for me. However, I live abroad in a country where they don't sell the Lenovo Yoga Book. I'm soon going for a short visit to the Netherlands where I can finally see (and most likely buy) it, but I have a couple of questions that I can't seem to figure out from searching online (and I will not have enough time in the Netherlands to keep going to the shop ).  I am interested in buying the Android version. First of all, because I am buying it as a tablet and not a laptop; second because of the 100 euros price difference (yes, welcome to Europe...) and third because of the ability to take notes in tablet mode with the screen off. However, I struggle to find out how to digitalize handwriting notes and I read contradicting statements on this.  From handwriting to textAs I understood, you can't digitalize (meaning change handwriting into text) with the app that Lenovo installed (Note Saver). Is that correct? If that is the case, I am looking for a programme that can do this. Does it exist for Android? I've been looking into OneNote. Is it possible to write using OneNote and then convert the handwriting to text? Or do you know of any other apps? Evernote for example? Furthermore, when using those apps (especially OneNote), can you convert it do a .doc document?  Taking notesAnoth... Read more

Devo con rammarico pronunciarmi negativamente sulla scarsa funzionalitą e su una scarsa assistenza nel quale mi sono inbattuto nonostante che il prodotto sia in garanzia. Uso da qualche mese il Notebook Yoga book e l'idea di maneggiare file di sistema non mi ha mai sfiorato, piccoli bug saltuariamente ma nulla di significativo, poi dopo aver disinstallato una applicazione game domino il sistema si č riavviato e da quel momento si riavvia in continuazione senza riuscire ad accedere al desktop. Ho provato ad accedere al bios ma non vorrei effettuare un ripristino dell'apparecchio, anche se non saprei nemmeno come procedere. A meno che non voglia commettere un rischio il quale non voglio assolutamente compiere. Dunque vi chiedo come procedere per completare la corretta accensione del dispositivo. Qualcuno che conosca le operazioni presenti nel bios, oppure booh! Grazie
